Meteor Combination (メテオコンビネーション) is Goku's Final Smash in Super Smash Flash 2.

Overview

When performed, Goku uses Instant Transmission towards a nearby foe and delivers a powerful spin kick upon reappearing. If the hit connects, it deals 13% damage to the opponent and knocks them into a rocky field. A cinematic plays then plays in which Goku gets down on his hands before rushing forward at the trapped opponent in his Super Saiyan form with his elbow out. Once he stops rushing, Goku then performs a series of kicks with a heavy punch at the end while transforming into his Super Saiyan God, Autonomous Ultra Instinct, and Super Saiyan Blue forms. He then uses Instant Transmission to teleport above, reverting back to his base form, and charges and throws a Genki Dama, a giant and powerful sphere of energy towards the opponent. Goku then transforms back into Super Saiyan Blue form, makes a salute gesture while saying "See ya!" and uses his force to further push the Genki Dama until it explodes on the opponent and knocks them away, dealing 32% damage and strong knockback to the opponent. Afterward, the cinematic ends as Goku reverts back to his base form again and reappears on the stage with Instant Transmission, ending the move.

If there are no opponents nearby when performing the initial kick, Goku will simply reappear in the same position he used Instant Transmission in, ending the move. The move may also end prematurely if Goku fails to trap any opponents with his kick.

Origin

Goku attacking Piccolo with Meteor Combination in the anime Dragon Ball.

Meteor Combination is a rush attack used several times by Goku in the Dragon Ball franchise. As seen when first used against Piccolo, Goku charges at his opponent and elbows them away, following it up with a barrage of kicks and punches, which ends with a heavy punch to Piccolo's stomach to paralyze him. Afterwards, Goku fires a Super Kamehameha down at him, inflicting a massive amount of damage. In SSF2, the move resembles how it appears in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3, though it also includes several milestone techniques of Goku, including his transformations during the barrage of kicks, the Super God Shock Flash in place of the heavy punch, and the Genki Dama in place of the Super Kamehameha. It seems to also draw references to the fight between Goku and Broly in Dragon Ball Super: Broly, in which he briefly enters his ultimate form Autonomous Ultra Instinct while transforming from Super Saiyan God to Super Saiyan Blue.

The Genki Dama, which is used at the end of the move, is regarded as one of the strongest attacks in the series and is the strongest technique in Goku's arsenal. It was created by the North Kaio and is one of two techniques he taught to Goku when he trained in the other world, the other being Kaiō-ken. The Genki Dama is formed by gathering huge amounts of energy from all chosen surrounding life forms and then conducting that energy into a massive sphere of astounding destructive power. When used, it is quite swift, and if the user is not careful, the Genki Dama could obliterate multiple things, from planets to galaxies. To use it, one must have a pure heart. Its use in SSF2 also seems to draw references to the fight between Goku and Majin Buu in Dragon Ball Z, in which Goku uses his Super Saiyan form to push the Genki Dama toward Buu before it eventually explodes, and the fight between Goku and Jiren in Dragon Ball Super, in which Goku powers up through his Super Saiyan Blue form amidst the Genki Dama in order to break Jiren's defenses. The quote "See ya!" is taken from the game Dragon Ball FighterZ and is a reference to the final speech Goku gives to Buu before destroying him.
